Since cur recent remarks on the clanger of
drinking spirituous liquors without being
perfectly well assured as to their origin, we
have beard within a week, from three differ*
ent sources, ot the death of six different per
Bons—four in one place and iwo in others—
from drinking spirits. The deaths iu ques
tion were all immediate, and caused, not by
excessive drinking, but by the poisonous na
ture of the liquor.
If this poison was strychnine, and it is
not impossible, the cause of these deaths
would be apparent enough. Strychnine is a
horrible flavoring material, rather worse
than anything else known in the materia
vmliea% oxalic acid not excepted; and those
who have sceu a man die from its effects,
have also seen the intensest agony to which
poor humanity can be subjected, lhe oar
ful convulsions and intensity of rue n»g
pain which it occasions, seem like Htorv
taste of torture beyond human conoep •
I>eeidedlv, strychnine is not nice, and t _
iho do not fcner it bad better be ralher n.ce
■when the temptation to drink dou itiul liq lor
comes in their way.
Hot Htrvcbnine does not alwav* come
atone. Evil angels always fly in flocks.
Jn all newly distilled spirits from corn occurs
the deadly “fuser or “fousel” oil-otherwise
known as amylic alcohol—a peculiar oily
spirit, first detected and collected in the pro
cess of distilling spirit from potatoes. It is
found, however, in several kinds of spirituous
liquors, apd abounds in common whiskey.—
Its presence in the liquor is in exact propor
tion to the amount of spirit extracted from
the grain, or, as it is expressed m tur
ner's Chemistry, “it is particularly abuudant
towards the close of the process.” Thus in
oood old fashioned domestic distilling, and
when liquor was allowed to grow old enough
to allow the fusel oil to lose much of its
bad qualities, it had but little effect. Now,
however, when steam distilling wrenches
the last possible drop of spirit out ot corn,
it brings with it an unwonted quantity of
this poisort, which acts with terrible results
on the nerves; seeming like a diabolical in
spiration, stirring up mania, convulsions,
and the horrors, in an incredihy short space
of time. This tusel oil is a deadly poison, a
few dropssofficing to destroy life. “If,” says
Turner, “its vapor, mixed with air, is breath
ed for a little time, asthmatic pains and
coughing are likely to ensue, and even vnm
*> A iM-otrv utrom» article, that. And
it isf far from being scanty io roughly distill
ed spirits. It can be removed, but only par
tially. by frequent distillation, lo tbu*
re-JiVtiRing three hundred barrels of whiskey,
one whole barrel ol pure lusel has been col
lected. ..
It is very remarkable that the fusel oil,
v'bn removed from the whiskey, is only ta
ken away to be put back again in another but
still more deadly form. From it is made the
oil of cognac, one dollar’s worth of which
will turn one hundred gallons of whiskey
into “tine old brandy." A very few drops of
this “devil’s elixir," as it has been called,
will produce almost instant death—as hap
pened last summer in Canada "\V est to a
young roan who, while busied in turning
whiskey into brandy, inadvertantly tasted
the transforming medium and died directly.
As this black chemistry is not always car
ried on by practised chemists, who are very
careful as to the proportions, it may well be
supposed that mistakes will occasionally oc
cur. Young men are desirous of giving an
extra high flavor to brandy, and w ho are
ignorant of the deadly qualities of the fla
voring essence, may very innocently raise the
“rosy" up to killing pitch. In tact we have
known ot one manufacturer who honestly be
lieved that “madb brandy” was more whole
some than the best imported, having got
the idea that the oil deposited a “floculent
matter" and tof k all the fusel poison out of
the whiskev. And there are thousands up
on thousands ot men who would sell any
amount of poison if they could only make
an additional cent a gallon by it.
Of late the facilities for poisoning liquor
have increased with such teariul rapidity
that we can no more refrain from caution
ing our readers than we could from caution
ing them against the existence of any pest
Rooks are circulated,giving the fullest direc
tions for preparing poisonous counterfeits ol
every variety of liquor; and yet we nevei
heard of their authors or printers being in
dieted, while we have seen in this very city,
and in a newspaper, an advertisement in
which one familiar with the business cfloret]
his services by the day, guarantying to be
able to make all sorts of liquors at an ex
pense of only forty cents a gallon beyond
the cost of the wbisksy. AVe suggest thal
some of the zeal, now bestowed, and very
properly, on preventing the circulation ol
works of an immoral character, be extended
to those of a deiultu nature.—Vful. hvtnuuj

One dollar will buy one of the
best Purgative and Liver Medicines now
before the public, namely: DR. SANFORD’S
INVIGORATOR, OR LIVER REMEDY,that
I acts as a Cathartic, easier, milder, and more
effectual than any other medicine known. It is
not only a Cathartic, but a Liver remedy, acting
first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter,
then on the stomach ami bowels to carry off that
! master, thu* accomplishing two purposes effec
| tuallw without any of the paintul feelings ex
perienced m the operations ot most ( athartics.
It strengthens the system at the same time that
it purges it and w hen taken daily in moderate
doses will strengthen and build it up with unu
; sual rapidity.
DR SANFORD'S INVIGORATOR is com
pounded entirely trom new articles of medicine,
namely. Gums.
j Some idea of the strength of these gums may
be formed when it is known that one bottle of
the Invigorator contains as much strength as one
hundred doses ot ( alomel. without uu\ ot its
deleterious effects.
Though possessing rare medicinal powers,
! these Gums have been but little known to physi
j cians. and never used in their prescriptions un
til used in the form ot the Invigorator. which
root with such unprecedented success as to in
duce the proprietor to offer it as a family medi
cine, tried and known in its effects It lias rare
ly ever tailed to cure Liver Complaints in their
i worst forms.
«NDIGESTION being caused by a deranged
i Liver iscured when the Liver is excited ?o action
JAUNDICE is caused by an improper action
of the Liver,and as a proof that the Invigorator
| relieves this disease, iet any one troubled with
Jaundice take th* Invigorator regularly one
week, and their suiii will begin to assume its ori
! ginal color.
COSTIVENESS can be permanently cured by

tiring, ami it assists nature in her operations.
By gradually diminishing the dose, the bowels
are lett in a healthy and active state, and work
as regularly as clock work.
SICK HEADACHE is very soon relieved by
taking a double dose ot the Invigorator, which
corrects all acidity and sournessofthe stomach.
For an over loaded stomach it has no equal, as
it relieves all oppressive or uneasy leeling after
eating heartily. For a family medicine gene
rally. all who use it speak in the highest terms.
DR. SANFORD'S IN V1GORATOR came to
us recommended as a cure for Liver Complaints,
and all diseases arising from a Diseased Liver.
The testimonials ol so many ot our Physicians
in its lav or. induced us to tiy it, and now con
viction is certain that it is one ot the greatest
blessings ever given to Dyspeptics, tor it made
a complete cure before the first bottle was taken
and now we can eat anything edible without
■ i trouble, while before nothing but the lightest
‘ f food would digest, and often tuat gave pain.
! Now what we want to say to all our readers is.
! |t Lfcer Complaint or Dyspepsia trouble you.
i do not tail to tiy this the greatest lemedy in the
1 world.—State J* act.
j We take infmi’e pleasure iri recommending this
medicine as a preventive tor I* ever and Aovu.
Chill Fryer, am! all FevkksoI a Bilious Typk.
It operates with certainty, and thousands aie
willing to testily to iN wonderful virtues.
There has never been tried in our family a
remedy which lias met with such unbounded
success in ihe cure of diseases incident to chil
dren, as DR. SANFORD'S INVIGORATOR;
r nor is it aione for diseases ot children that we
use it; tor it acts as a Cathartic so mildly and
gently, and seems to renovate the system so
thoroughly that we think we are doing a service
to all in advising them, when they need medi
cine. to try this remedy. There are cases that
have come under our notice w here great benefit
has been received in diseases of the Liver,
Stomach, and Bowels, where all other remedies
tailed to give relief. It has become so useful in
our family that we will not be without it.—
Jacksonville. Jila. layubiican.
We wish all who are sick and debilitated to
try this remedy, and test it thoroughly, and any
who are not benetitted by its use we should like
‘ to hear from, as we have yet to hear tiom the
tirst person who has used a bottle 01 lnvigora
• toi without receiving benefit, tor there are such
! astonishing medicii al virtues in it, that all, no
j matter how long they have been affected, if
I their complaint arises trom a deranged Liver,
! will be benetitted, it not entirely cured. Price
